I Am One Tab

   
I Am One  -- Smashing Pumpkins (Corgan/Iha)

This is the best I can do with this song.  I only have an acoustic guitar, so
I can't tab out guitar solos very well.  Hope you like it.

4 bar drum intro

4 bars of bass: (repeat 2x)

(Some guitar solo that I can't figure out with some pinch artificial harmonics.)

(with verse guitar part):

I am one as you are three
Try to find messiah in your trinity
Your city to burn
Your city to burn
Try to look for something in your city to burn

You'll burn (unison guitars)

(verse)
Time is right for a guiding light
Try to turn to reasons in your bitter life
Your city to burn
Your city to burn
Try to look for something in your city to burn

You'll burn (unison guitars, play twice)

(...into the double guitar solo.. both James & Billy solo for 8 bars or so)

Out of solo:

(Back into more of Billy soloing and James playing his rhythm part with D'arcy.
  This goes on for about 8 bars or so)

Basically the "See you... blah blah" part again with Billy playing some sort of
 F#7 chord over it... either:

-----    --11-or-9--
-----    --10--
--9--    --11--
-11-- or ------ which isn't really an F#7, but you get the idea.
--9--    ------
-----    ------

End on the F# chord hits.
